I’m a legally married gay man living with Central Sleep Apnea in Mid-Missouri. When I’m “awake,” I enjoy rocking and talking about my life and politics. My posts are infrequent and thoughtfully titled after famous rocking tunes.
I was lucky to live in California in the Summer of 2008. There was a brief window of time for same-sex couples to marry, my long-time partner was ready, and our favorite (gay) county supervisor offered to perform the ceremony. My husband is also my greatest advocate on the healthcare front. Without his help, I’m not sure I’d be here to post.
My sleep disorder was once a mostly benign aspect of my life. Lately it has become much more serious, possibly life-threatening, in spite of continuous VPAP therapy. Writing about what we all go through is easier than describing my condition in detail. And there are days I cannot write at all. I hope you don’t mind.
When my last paycheck job ended, I started a marketing firm to help small businesses create an effective web presence. I’m now limited to volunteer projects. The song remains the same, by which I mean my rules haven’t changed. Read this site’s Production Details.
Though I love what I can do with WordPress, I’m not a GPL fan, which is why I use ©. When GPL’s spirit of sharing and intellectual property laws align, I’ll board that train.
Blogging is definitely compatible with a sleep disorder: You can write in chunks and nod off as needed. I won’t promise to post regularly because my own schedule isn’t regular.
I can promise that every word is mine, and all of it is for you, written from my heart.
